Newcastle Maker - Hugh Breckenridge

Hey team,

Picked up these teaspoons the other day and it was a maker I hadn't seen before, and hadn't been seen here (from what I could find!), so I thought I would post his mark. Hugh Breckenridge (with various other spellings) only sent items in for assay from 1805 til 1811. He ramped up production a bit as he went on, but wasn't producing a lot. His maker's mark never seems particularly well struck, but you can make it out from the three pictured.

Hi Ben,

Thanks for sharing this with us. There is apparently very little, or nothing, to found about this silversmith, he's a real mystery man.

Trev.
